The Religion of the Moon "God"

(By A.C)
The Babylonian MOON-GOD is located in the British Museum, Babylonian Room, Case B. It is a humanoid form seated on a throne having a crescent moon in front of the moon god's head.
Have you ever wondered why the crescent Moon is the symbol of Islam? Why do Muslims put a crescent Moon on top of their mosques and minarets? Why do flags of Islamic nations have the crescent Moon? Why do Muslims put a crescent Moon on their caps?
The Religion of the Moon
The picture of the Babylonian Moon-God found on a cylinder seal in the British Museum is from an archeological discovery from the Middle East, which is now on display at the British Museum. Throughout the Fertile Crescent from Egypt to Turkey, archeologists have dug up hundreds of little idols with a crescent Moon sitting on their head. In ancient pagan temples, there are walls with pictures of a god sitting on a throne with a crescent Moon over his head. At times there are several stars placed near the Moon to symbolize the daughters of the Moon god.

The Connection

By this time, you are beginning to realize that there must be a connection between the ancient pagan religion of the worship of the god and Islam. And you are correct. Before Mohammed (if he ever really existed) was ever born, the Arabs worshipped 360 pagan gods housed in the Kabah in Mecca. One of the pagan gods they worshipped was the Moon god who was married to the Sun goddess. The stars were their children.

The Rituals of the Moon

People worshipped the Moon god by bowing in prayer toward Mecca several times a day. They would make a pilgrimage to Mecca and run around a pagan stone temple called the Kabah seven times; slit the throat of a sheep; and throw stones at the devil. They gave alms to the poor in honor of the Moon god. They fasted during the month, which began with the appearance of the crescent Moon in the sky and closed when the crescent Moon reappeared. They put the symbol of the crescent Moon on the walls of their homes and on their clothing. This Moon religion was the pagan religion in which Mohammed was reared.

"Wait a second", you may be saying to yourself, "the ancient religious rituals of the Moon are what the Muslims are still practicing today! The Muslims bow in prayer toward Mecca. They make a pilgrimage to Mecca and run around the Kabah seven times. They are still slitting the throats of sheep and throwing stones at the devil. They even have the fast of Ramadan, which begins and ends with the crescent Moon. If this is true, then what we today call the "pillars of Islam" is nothing more than the pagan rituals of the Moon god!!"

Archeologists have discovered that the name of the Moon god in Arabia was "Al-ilah" which was later shortened to "Allah." His consort was the Sun goddess and their daughters wer called "the daughters of Allah." The names of the "daughters of Allah" as given in the Qur`an are Lat, Uzza and Manat (Surah 53:19-20). They are the stars next to the symbol of the Moon.

The Mystery Solved

The mystery is now solved. Where did Islam get the crescent Mon symbol which sits on top of its mosques and is displayed on its flags? From the religion of the Moon god. Where did Islam get the name of its god? From the Moon god, Allah. How sad it is to see people ignorantly bowing down toward Mecca and praying toward the Moon god Allah. Muslims are actually worshipping demons according to the Bible (I Cor. 10:20).

The Religion of the Bible

How different is the religion of the Patriarchs, prophets, apostles and Jesus. They did not worship the Moon god Allah or practice any of its rituals. This is why Islam and its god Allah are never mentioned in the Bible. There is but one, true, living, eternal, triune Being who is God by nature and Maker of heaven and earth. The name of this one true God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:20); not Allah!!
